Salt & Straw – ice cream for ice cream lovers

Salt & Straw first came on to my radar 5 years ago and I still remember the discovery like it was yesterday. It was when I heard that the Portland-based ice cream company had released a Thanksgiving themed collection, and my lil' ice cream loving self went wild. Imagine, your Thanksgiving table in ice cream form. Turkey, stuffing, pumpkin pie...even…
The Ever So Grateful Thanksgiving Cocktail Recipe

The Ever So Grateful Thanksgiving Cocktail Recipe

Are you as excited for all of the Thanksgiving food as we are? Bring on the turkey and stuffing and mashed potatoes! (Sure, and a vegetable…if we have to.) Thanksgiving is full of so much delicious butter-laden food, and that food deserves to be washed down with something equally delightful. Yes, wine is a safe go-to, but how about impressing…

3 Things: I Want Candy!

There's a bowl of Halloween candy sitting on my coffee table right now. It's been slowly/not so slowly dwindling since early September. It may or may not have been refilled twice since we originally filled said bowl. The best part about this bowl of Halloween candy? We don't get trick-or-treaters at our house! Zero. Zilch. None. Don't you judge me!…

Chorizo Breakfast Pizza recipe

An excuse to eat pizza in the morning? Yes, please. Pairing together two universally beloved things - pizza and brunch - can obviously only result in something even more amazing!

Theme parties are the best. They really are. Anyone who disagrees might be secretly be a robot who is dead inside.

Unsurpassed Flavor: Q Sushi review

Has anyone ever asked you "If you could only eat one food for the rest of your life, what would it be?" I'm sure they have, it's a road trip classic. I don't get asked by friends anymore, because my answer was always the same: sushi. And it's absolutely true; I could eat only sushi for the rest of my…

Flannel Pajamas – Whiskey Cocktail Recipe

Here we are in the new year, trying our best to eat healthy and get fit after the indulgent season of everything delicious. (I ask you, how does anyone resist never-ending plates of cookies and peppermint-flavored everything? How?!) It's #newyearnewyou time, but in the midst of resolution season, when you're not quite far enough into the year to fall off…

3 Things: What’s cookin’, good lookin’?

It's finally cold outside and the crockpot is pretty much just constantly on these days. Or, crockpots. I currently am in possession of two larger crockpots and two smaller ones and I don't think I can ever have enough. I am jealous of people who own those buffet crockpots with the three pots in one unit---they're living the dream, y'all.…

3 Things: Christmas Cookies

It's cookie time, people! I've been eating a low carb diet for the better part of the last year and this Christmas - I'm eating ALL of the carbs. Everything in moderation, but I am super excited to bake cookies and to eat them Cookie Monster-style. Like, I'm pretty sure the only way to eat cookies is double fisted, amirite?…

2015 Gift Guide: Subscription Boxes

Boxes full of surprises that show up randomly at your door. A dream? Nope, a subscription box! And of course, I ADORE them. I'd subscribe to each and every one I could find if my budget allowed. They're also the ultimate gift: fun to unwrap, catered to a person's loves or hobbies, multiple items inside. I'm getting excited just thinking…
